Broken Air Conditioner in heatwave
The air conditioner did not work. It was 25+ degrees Celsius. Told the receptionist in the morning and I was told they send someone to fix it during the day. When I can back in the evening it was hot! The air conditioner did not work. I told reception again they said no one had looked at it but could send someone. A maintenance person came and told me it’s broken and can’t be fixed, and that reception would call me within 5 minutes. After half an hour a I went down again. I was told it is too late to change rooms and I got a fan. Was told to come back in the morning. I did and they suggested I check out and check back in later and if I wanted to se the room I had to stay at the hotel all day. And all the time they had to ask “a manager”. Completely incapable of making any decisions at all. I felt I was politely told to f**k off and don’t bother them over and over. And at my checkout they tried to charge me a second time!! And for the breakfast I was given as a compensation for the broken Air conditioner. So service is non existing. Would not recommend his hotel to anyone. All thank s to the receptionists lack of doing anything. Location is great, but luckily there are plenty other hotels around for my next visit.

Good location; decent value
Good location. Small rooms, but, overall, a good value when compared to other options in London. There are many better hotels in the city but seldom at Thistle’s price point. And, many more expensive hotels (e.g. Two Hilton’s we’ve stayed in had rooms just as small.
